Perhaps the finest song, by the finest folk songwriter, ever.
Here’s one I’ve been singing for years — sounding a lot better with a band behind it! The tune seems to have changed a bit since I learnt it, I think… I’m a one-man aural tradition I suppose.
Quite unexpectedly, Mr FaceOmeter invited me on stage for the end of his set, and suggested that we sing a Tom Waits song we both love.
I realise now that in that context it’s even a little homoerotic. But I’m fine with that. So long as I get to be the whale.
It was Hannah. She made me do it.
Merry season-of-twinkly lights, one and all! My gift? A new video for a song called ‘For A Moment’.
See you lovely people for the big 2015 thing. (I.e. 2015.)
